During the spring and fall of 2008, I had the opportunity to visit eight independent schools in the city of Montreal - all of them members of the Quebec Association of Independent Schools. Needless to say, they all provide a high quality academic foundation and a comfortable, personalized place for students to study and grow. I visited a boys' school (Selwyn House School), four girls' schools (Miss Edgar's and Miss Cramp's School, The Sacred Heart School of Montreal, The Study, Trafalgar School for Girls) and three co-ed schools (Centennial Academy, St. George's School of Montreal, The Priory School). Each school is a unique entity - with their own strengths, specialities, culture and attributes. As an educational consultant, it's important for me to visit as many independent schools as possible so I can assist families who are "looking for the best personal fit" for their child.
